2 Corinthians 4:14-5:1


NEW TESTAMENT READING (Second Reading)

 

2 Corinthians 4:14-5:1

 

A reading from the second Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians

 

 Brothers and Sisters:

 

Knowing that the One who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and place us with you in his presence.  Everything indeed is for you, so that the grace 

 

bestowed in abundance on more and more people may cause the thanksgiving to overflow for the glory of God.  Therefore, we are not discouraged; rather, although our 

 

outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.  For this momentary light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all 

 

comparison, as we look not to what is seen but to what is unseen; for what is seen is transitory, but what is unseen is eternal.

 

For we know that if our earthly dwelling, a tent, should be destroyed, we have a building from God, a dwelling not made with hands, eternal in heaven.

 

The word of the Lord
